WITUSCHEK from Fillipowa to Milwaukee

WITUSCHEK from Fillipowa to Milwaukee

As far as Wituschek in Austria Hungary or the USA I know very little. I am related through my AMENT WITUSCHEK lines in Filipovo. I am also in contact with cousins Mathiaus and Greta Wituschek of Germany.

Stefan Wituschek probably b: 11 APR 1866 in Kula, d.1 OCT 1938 in Milwaukee, WI. left Filipowa and eventually moved to 592 12th ST. Milwaukee, WI (brother in Filipowa Johann AWAUK? AMENT?) Followed by his wife Magdalena Wituschek on Aug 13, 1910 arrived Ellis Island Sep 01, 1910 with there 5 children:

1)Anna b.1902
2)Gyorgy b.23 Apr 1897 Fillipowa d. 29 Oct 1989 lived Greenfield, Milwaukee, WI. (George)
3)Jozsef b. 1896
4)Katarina b. 1900
5)Stefan b. 1907

6)Johann WITUSCHEK b: 6 SEP 1891

Stefan probably came with a Son to Milwaukee who may had took residence in Milwaukee or Chicago. Johann WITUSCHEK b: 6 SEP 1891 in Filipowa However its not known what happened to the family George seems to be the only one that remained in the Milwaukee area. I could not find any census records for the family. Did they return to Fillipowa? Or spread out in the USA.
He was the son of Father: Stefan WITUSCHEK b: 14 JUN 1837 in Filipowa Mother: Anna KREWENKA b: 5 JAN 1840 in Filipowa
George possibly had a gr. grand daughters Rita Kay and Kathy Wituschek (m.Joseph George Stichart) who were beauty pageant contestants. Also possibly had gr. grandsons Thomas Andrew Wituschek and George Paul Wituschek. A Elizabeth lived in Wisconsin Born: 1897 Died: 1980

Other Wituschek lived in Doylestown, Pennsylvania and in other states. but we don't know if they were from the Fillipowa clan.

Does anyone have information on this family?

Can any one find WITUSCHEK -Witaschek in Milwaukee

In case it's helpful, Magdalena Wituschek's death notices were published in the local German language newspapers. A George & Maria Wituschek published a public thank you following the death of an infant George Wituschek.
